Having all the cops in the story look like Jack Webb was not one of my more inspired ideas, (DRAGNET was a show about LA, not NYC cops, and my Joe Fridayish dialogue was pretty subpar) but redoing the art digitally has at least given me a chance to improve on the likenesses. Back in 1994 I had to rely on whatever photo reference I could gather from the NY Public Library picture collection, or from old magazines, but Google Image Search has a far better selection of Jack Webb photos, which I can display right next to my Photoshop window (no, I didn't do any direct tracing).
And yes, in the East Village we really did use "wheatpaste" as a verb.
